Back from Surf City


We had a nice, albeit cold, weekend in Surf City.  Not too much outside activity since it was pretty cold down there still (in the 30s and 40s), but still enjoyable just getting away.  Coming home to Virginia was an easy trip but when we got to the house, since the weather had been warm last week, we nearly froze – it was 57 degrees inside and took the better part of the evening to warm the place up.  This morning, scraped ice from the windshield as usual – hate it!  Got to work early (5:45 AM) and found the usual batch of emails to wade through.  Boy, is retirement going to be sweet. 

Anyway, here’s to hitting the ground running.  School starts back this week – 2 full online courses, one over full class at Ft. Belvoir, and the usual small 6000 course.

I’ll make it though………..believe me!

A week of batching it is about to end!

Patti is coming back from SC today after spending a week with her parents, celebrating their 65th Wedding Anniversary. They went to Charleston for a couple of days, actually staying in Mt. Pleasant. From what I can tell from the phone conversations, they had a great time and the weather was good throughout their stay. Naturally, during this same week, I spent most of my time foraging for food and entertainment. Its sure boring being home alone, especially on weekends. Maybe next Friday we’ll go to the beach for a few days. I’m up for that – more than a few days would be even better.
